We put the key in position one and left the car on for four hours. The radio still says OFF and we are not able to put in the code to restart the radio. My daughter punched "a whole bunch" of buttons when the radio did not come on after having the battery jumped. Since then, we replaced the battery but still cannot get the radio to say Code and accept the code. Still OFF after four hours of sitting on at key position one. Any suggestions?
Sometimes it takes MUCH longer than the 4 hours (up to 8). Neat system, huh? By the time it resets, your battery is dead and it will shut off again!!! No wonder the stock radio hardly ever gets stolen. Put a trickle charger on the battery, and leave it on for longer. (Make sure your insurance covers theft lol, I did it once and forgot that the key was in my car in the driveway for a full day)

There might be a ground wire loose or any of the positive wires coming off the battery might also be loose or coroded. That can also be part of your prior fuse problem. If its the same fuse that blows, that could be where your entire problem existes.
Very interesting site here.. regarding your problem. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/ Another thought.. even though you charged the battery, it's not at all uncommon for a car battery to be very damaged by fully discharging. Especially if not new-ish. One or more cells in it may be bad causing the overall voltage to be under normal. This alone can cause the problem you have. I would try jumping it with another car or test the battery to see if it's got at least 12.7 to 12.9 volts when sitting doing nothing. Good luck.
When you put the stereo in, what did you do with the red wire with a green stripe? The aftermarket radios don't always use these, so you have to wrap the ends, depending on whether or not you used a wiring harness. If that wire is shorted on the chassis, it will blow the dimmer fuse.

put a battery charger on the battery,turn key to on postion[engine not running] turn radio to on and let it sit there like that for about 5 hours or untill radio say code then enter right code. if battery goes dead during this you have to dtart over
You need to leave the key in the ignition in position I (accessory) for two hours, after that it will say code and you can input the code. The radio switches to "OFF" after three failed attempts with the wrong code. If you dont have the code call the dealership with your VIN and they can give it to you.
With a good battery in the car turn the ignition key to Position I. Do not put the key in position II. Make sure "OFF" is displayed. Let the car sit with the key in position I for about two hours. "CODE" will appear in the display. Enter your code.
Turn the key to position ONE (turn one position from where the key is inserted). The radio should be left on. Make sure the a/c blower is in the off position. There should be no dash lights on. It should reset somewhere between two to eight hours. After at least two hours it should read CODE again.
If you cut the power, or the battery goes dead it won't reset.
